A rare out-of-season Thursday nighter saw the Back to Basics vans gather at Yarmouth Stadium. The car front saw a large variety, with 336 Jamie Plane’s Renault Master and 173 Luke Spall’s Mazda Bongo Friendee topping the bill. Yarmouth regular’s 14 Barry Payne and 200 Gav Baldy impressed on the paint front alongside the aforementioned 336 Fathead.

Heat 1 begun with 13 Bo spinning 129 Penfold, as 173 Spally covered the crowd in a diesel smoke screen. 175 Emmo turfed aside 336 Fathead, before 46 Loan had a nibble at 433 Smith. A few came together under the starters rostrum including 585 Five Eyes and 13 Bo. 439 Sutty spun 336 Fathead. 46 Loan spun 585 Five Eyes before 404 Dace posted 818 Brown on the pits bend. 585 Five Eyes recovered to attack 129 Barker and 39 Pusher Paul, Penfold then coming under fire from 46 Loan too. 433 Smith spun 748 Ginge. 175 Emmo spun 336 Fathead, who’s tanky Renault Master was becoming a bit of a target for the rest of the field. 585 Five Eyes spun the luckless 336 Fathead, which caused the leading 14 Bazza to take extreme avoiding action via the infield, slaloming his way through the dead cars and holding on to take the win. 862 Eglington weighed in on 13 Bo to end the action.

Heat 2 started with a big push along the home straight, with a certain casualty occurring – as it were, 129 Barker ended up the one losing out, rolling over to bring an early red flag; 540 Chunk and 39 Pusher Paul also going in further down the home straight. The restart saw heat one winner 14 Bazza set about the lurking 439 Sutty which caused carnage, as cars went in all directions taking out the leading 818 Brown. 13 Bo leant in 439 Sutty into the marker tyres – the former being leathered by 769 Englestone in turn. 873 Roberts spun 862 Englington and 209 Williams wiped out 14 Bazza. 748 Ginge spun 209 Williams before 46 Loan jacked 13 Bo. 862 Eglington then spun 13 Bo who had a luckless couple of laps. 323 Tweedy had a go at 748 Ginge. 873 Roberts spun 433 Smith, as 748 Ginge set about 175 Emmo. 585 Five Eyes then dealt with the pair of them. 873 Roberts drove through 13 Bo, before rolling himself. With only a lap and a half remaining, the race was declared with 33 Gary Madgwick taking the honours.

The Final saw 129 Barker again roll early on after a big push from the pack into the pits bend. 13 Bo took out 39 Pusher Paul on the restart, before 433 Smith reversed out on the leading 404 Dace. 433 Smith and 336 Fathead combined to cause mayhem on the pits bend, more or less completely blocking the track. 760 Hazza turned it around and destroyed 323 Tweedy on oppo, well and truly snapping the latter. 818 Brown drove through 439 Sutty. Loads piled into the carnage on the pits bend. 873 Roberts ran 540 Chunk into the pile up. 439 Sutty backed out on the leading 33 Magic, who had already received a black cross for cutting the infield. Madgwick won but was docked two places for his black cross, handing the win to 404 Sam Dace, who’d had a good night of things previously taking a pair of second places. 585 Kevin Giles promoted to second.

The DD commenced with 209 Williams homing in on 873 Roberts. 200 Tank and 862 Eglington combined to set about 33 Magic. 404 Dace weighed in on 862 Eglington. 200 Tank jacked 109 Posh Boy. 404 Dace delivered a huge portion to 760 Hazza. 873 Roberts went in on 200 Tank as the action came thick and fast. 14 Bazza delivered a reverse attack on 404 Dace before setting about 200 Tank, the latter responding with a nibble at Bazza. 14 Bazza again delivered a reverse attack on 200 Tank. The pile up on the pits bend saw cars trying to break free; 433 Smith gaining enough momentum to drive through 33 Magic. It appeared to go all quiet, before 433 Smith emerged from the chaos to take the win, celebrating with a flat out reverse shot on 760 Hazza to end proceedings.

The Back to Basics always deliver at Yarmouth and the added Van Banger novelty certainly provided that extra entertainment and the drivers’ were rewarded with a great reception from the holiday crowd who were just as up for the occasion.
